    Had a great time at the tournament today. Thanks to all who made the drive and special thanks to pinball-is-great for being the tournament director and zuckboy for hosting at his great location!

    #302 3 years ago

    Thanks TigerLaw. Glad you had a good time.
    You placed ahead of me two tournaments in a row now. Definitely something wrong with that.

    Here's a couple pics taken at the tournament:
    Not quite everyone in the group pic that was taken just before 1st round matches started.
    We had players from 4 states entered in this tournament (AL, LA, MS, & TX). 17 players total.

    #309 2 years ago

    What a great tournament and a great bunch of people that got together this weekend.
    Congrats to our three Winners, Preston, Dennis and Kevin.
    We had some crazy comeback wins and even one game that was won by 1 single point. (Wow).
    Special thanks to our awesome host Joshua and his spectacular gameroom the he did most of the work building himself.
    Very impressive.
    We rolled back into Beaumont around 1:30 in the morning.

    Those trophies were amazing that Zukboy made!

    #311 2 years ago

    Thanks Josh, Mike and Jody for putting on a(nother) great tourney! Got back to just south of the middle of nowhere about 1:30, but it was well worth the trip seeing old friends and meeting new folks.

    Those AL and TX boys are tough. Gonna have to up our training regimen here in MS if they plan on showing up regularly.

    The trophies Josh made were great - and I think it really ties the LA shelf together nicely -

    I know it'll be a super long drive for you but I hope you can make it to Lake Charles on the 13th of August.

    We were figuring it out on the way back last night, and its about 4.5 hours to Lake Charles. Might have to make an overnight trip of it, but at least its looking more feasible.

    That would be great! Lake Charles has a lot of good places to stay, the two large casino hotels in particular are amazing but there are other good places as well.

    #315 2 years ago

    Round trip to Lake Charles today with for a drop off and pick up. MM is going to live at Jody's for a while and GOT came to my house.

    Henry wants to know "Who is PJM ?" 11 billion is out of his range but he's going to try hard to beat it.

    BTW, that's a nice score Preston!

    #317 2 years ago

    Thanks, it's changed up a bit lol I'm planning on having another tournament in November not sure on the date yet. Hope you can make it.

    Jodester's Tron tragically had all its scores reset when it arrived at my place. We were just baffled by this as everything else was fine, must have been some weird power surge or something that only affected the High Scores on that one machine . . . I hope that is not an issue with all of his games he has out on loan, you'll have to keep us posted if it happens with GoT as well.

    We already discussed that.

    #326 2 years ago

    I know I'm late posting but I wanted to thank Josh for hosting a great tournament, Mike for running it, and everyone else that was involved. Glad everyone that came from out of state, decided to make the drive. It was not fun getting in at 1:30 (especially for Kevin since he was driving ) but, it was well worth it. I didn't do as well as in the tournament as I would have liked but I always enjoy talking and visiting and meeting new people as much or more than the tourney. Hope I can see you all again on the 13th.

    #327 2 years ago

    I'm thinking September for a Shreveport Tournament. I will propose a few good dates for me and see what works for the largest number of players. It will be on a Saturday. I will likely need a tournament director as I have not previously hosted or directed one.

    Available roster for play

    GoT Pro
    LOTR LE
    ST LE
    AMH
    Full Throttle
    Banzai Tun
    Centigrade 37
    Big Bang Bar
    Possible Undecided new game (if below sells)

    Maybes (if they don't sell to a local operator first)
    Ship Ahoy
    JM

    That would be awesome!!! Both Pinball-is-great and Jodester are seasoned at being tournament directors and both are fantastic.

    #329 2 years ago
    Quoted from action76:

    Hope I can see you all again on the 13th.

    That would be awesome if you guys could make it to Lake Charles.

    I'm thinking September for a Shreveport Tournament.

    Cool will this one be the Port City pinball tournament? Zukboy's was South Louisiana Summer tournament and we have Romp in the Swamp coming up. So you now have to name yours

    #332 2 years ago

    Mmmmmm....

    Red River Replay

    But I'm kind of partial to the Black Knight Invitational

    image_(resized).jpeg

    #333 2 years ago

    I'm good with anything Monty Python.

    #334 2 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    Red River Replay

    That's a perfect one. You'll need to register it 30 days in advance. Whoever you pick as your tournament director will handle that for you.

    #335 2 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    I'm thinking September for a Shreveport Tournament.

    Nevus,

    Way to go Nevus!
    Please clarify if this particular tournament is planned to be a standard tournament or a charity tournament.
    This can affect the name of the tournament among other things.

    #336 2 years ago

    We are thinking about doing the Oil City Open on a Sunday so Allen can make it.
    Does Sunday October 9 work for some of you guys?

    #337 2 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    I'm kind of partial to the Black Knight Invitational

    May I offer a few suggestions for tournament names:

    * Black Knight Invitational Pinball Tournament 2016 - None Shall Pass!
    * Brave Sir Robin Pinball Tournament 2016
    * Red River Castle Anthrax Pinball Tournament 2016 ...{It's a Win-Win!}
    * Red River Gorge of Eternal Peril Pinball Tournament 2016
    * Knights of the Round Table Invitational Pinball Tournament 2016
    Note: May need to avoid possible copyright/naming issues if cash/prize awards. ??

    Looks real good for PavBall and I as of right now.

    #339 2 years ago

    I agree! I'm pumped Nevus is going to host a tournament!

    Yep. That's a good date. Thanks for checking.
    Sundays are better for me in Oct.

    #343 2 years ago

    For the non-Facebook. Currently looking at Sept 17 or 24. I have some local guys that I need to hear from.

    #344 2 years ago

    17th would be better for me personally but I could make either date work I believe. Looking forward to it!

    #345 2 years ago

    Nevus,

    Henry might try harder in the tournament if there is a real prize awarded, not just a trophy & money.
    You know, something like a toy space ship or a tractor, or an r/c car.

    #346 2 years ago

    Please don't forget to sign up as attending to the Romp In the Swamp on August 13th if you are planning to be there (you can enroll the day of the event of course). Tournament director Jodester is trying to get a handle on the number of people we may have (looks like we will have a good number of first time tournament participants):

    Both dates are good for me bro

    #348 2 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    Standard tournament

    Consider tossing in a side tournament as well. Those are always fun.

    The Romp in the Swamp will feature a Safe Cracker side tournament. All entrants will receive one token and have one chance to Assault the Vault. Scores will be tallied from first to last place, the top two will then have a head to head Assault the Vault battle to have the final winner.

    Assault the Vault is the "wizard" mode on Safe Cracker. It is activated with the use of a magic token and you have a 90 second multiball where your flippers die at the end. Perfect for the side tournament since the game will not be in the main tournament. Side tournaments also count for IFPA points, so people who come to the Romp in the Swamp will have a chance to win IFPA points from two different events, the main tournament and the side tournament.

    #349 2 years ago

    What's everyone up to this weekend? Any pinball related activities going on?

    #350 2 years ago

    No pinball here in Mexico and the view from my room sucks.
